Labor Movement Will Defend Democracy, Ensure Every Vote Cast is Counted

(Milwaukee, WI, November 3, 2020) -- As the polls have now come to a close on this election day, Wisconsin AFL-CIO President Stephanie Bloomingdale issued the following statement:

“Now that the polls are closing in Wisconsin, we must now exercise our democratic right to have our votes counted. Any legitimate election is one where everyone who is eligible to vote can do so, every ballot cast is counted and where voters decide the outcome and select our next leaders.” 

“The American labor movement will forever defend our democracy. So to those who seek to prevent eligible Americans’ votes from being counted and make bogus claims designed to undermine the democratic process, we will fight you every step of the way.”

“The power of the people’s voice at the ballot box cannot be denied and democracy will win the day.”
